What is urea?

Urea is a waste product formed from the breakdown of proteins. Urea is usually passed out in the urine. A high blood level of urea indicates that the kidneys may not be working properly, or that you are dehydrated (have a low body water content).

Therefore, high urea level is either caused by high protein intake or kidney damage. However, cabbage is not such food that are rich in protein, so it will not give high urea level.

Why does cabbage reduce urea nitrogen?

Urea nitrogen level in the blood is more accurate to indicate how well your kidneys are working. Normal human adult blood should contain between 6 to 20 mg of urea nitrogen per 100 ml (6–20 mg/dL) of blood.

Cabbage is rich of vitamin K, vitamin C, fiber, vitamin B6,and fiber, which are all benefit for kidney health. Healthy kidney can produce more urine output so as to help discharge excessive wastes and toxins, such as urea and creatinine.

Other dietary suggestions

Except for cabbage, carrot, potato, cranberry, pomegranate, strawberry milk, egg white, and lean meat, etc are all good choice if your urea level is high.

Only diet cannot treat certain disease. As high urea level always indicates kidney disease, you should take timely and proper treatment in case of further damage on the kidneys.
